Father Dear Father, 1968 – 1973

Produced by Thames Television for ITV Father Dear Father ran for 7 series over 5 years totaling 45 episodes and was a regular ratings winner for ITV.

Summary

Patrick Cargill plays a divorced thriller writer, Patrick Glover, who finds himself responsible for the welfare and upbringing of his irrepressible teenage daughters Anna and Karen. The two lively dolly-birds are always up to something, and their lively exploits cause Patrick many a difficult and embarrassing moment. He’s sometimes driven almost to distraction by their constant teasing and, to him, shockingly modern outlook on love, sex and marriage. Helping Patrick keep Anna and Karen in order is the patient and much put-upon housekeeper, Nanny, but the real power in the household is the family’s splendid St Bernard dog, H.G. Wells.
